Mindanao’s Surfin’ Swells
Ida Damo | Sep 10, 2018
The tear-shaped island of Siargao’s Cloud 9 has always been a favorite venue for national and international surfing cups because of its signature waves. Aside from Cloud 9, it has 9 other swells that allow for thrilling rides.
This year, the National Surfing Cup will be on September 23-27, and the International Surfing Cup will immediately follow on September 28- October 4, 2018.
Our local surfers will be giving the international competitors a run for the waves not just at sea but on the road.
Expect these names to be on the list of top surfers: Piso Alcala, John Mark Tokong, Sonny Boy Aporbo, and Nilbie Blancada.
In November 18-24, 2018, surfers will again meet to compete in Surigao del Sur’s Lanuza
